4 College Junior

Campus Quality: NC State boasts very good academic programs, and although it's not as good as Chapel Hill overall, it's still a very great school that anyone should be proud to go to.

3 College Junior

Party Scene: Lots of parties to go to, and several places to go to if you're over 21, such as bars and clubs.

5 College Junior

Greek Life: NC State has a very large greek life, so they have a pretty good presence on campus.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: There's a lot of places to choose from, but unfortunately a lot of the places are completely overpriced for average apartments.

5 College Sophomore

Athletics: Sports are very big at NCSU. There is a lot of pride in the Wolfpack and students get the most excited when they are able to attend the football games and basketball games!

3 College Sophomore

Weather: The weather is very mixed. It rains, it gets really hot, and it also gets really cold. However, it rarely ever snows.

5 College Sophomore

Campus Quality: NCSU just recently built its new Hunt Library on Centennial Campus and it is AMAZING. It is so modern and beautiful and a great place to focus and study. People are constantly in there touring the library and discovering how amazing it really is!

4 College Sophomore

Local Area: Raleigh has many things to do because it is the capital of North Carolina and a great city to live in. There are many cool places to eat and places to shop.

4 College Freshman

Academics: I'm in Criminology which is in the CHASS college at NCSU. I really like it so far. Right now I've only taken a few classes toward my major but everything I have taken so far has been great ! My professors have been and helpful.

Scholarships: Finding a scholarship that NC State offers can be very hard. I was only able to find one and I still didn't get it. But financial aid can always be very helpful.

4 College Freshman

Academics: I love the psychology department at NC State! It is filled with students who are very interested in the field and are willing to help you understand your topics of interest. The instructors are also very enthusiastic about teaching and helping you understand the material. The only setback is taking the intro to psychology class. It can be interesting sometimes, but boring, depending on the topic.

Academics: I definitely find the academic program challenging, but it definitely depends on your instructor. Some are legitimate professors who make the learning a experience a great one, while some instructors don't seem to care about how well you understand the material which makes you regret signing up for the class.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: It is extremely convenient living on campus and it helps a lot with meeting new people. The dorms can vary greatly in terms of size, but they are clean and are kept clean by the cleaning staff. I am very excited for my next year living on campus.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: There are many different places to live off campus and for the most part they are nice places with most of the neighbors being other NC State students. The biggest issue is the amount of crime in the area.

4 College Freshman

Majors: I am very happy thus far with engineering at NCSU. They want you to have a job after you get out, and unless you are severely slacking, you most certainly will.

4 College Freshman

Academics: Engineering is a tough major at any school, but especially at NCSU. You will be challenged, but nothing is out of reach.

4 College Freshman

Academics: NCSU is renowned for its engineering, as thus far I have no complaints in regards to my professors and my education.

4 College Freshman

Transportation: While NCSU has many pick up locations and transportation running around the clock, the buses aren't always consistant with the schedule which can be confusing

4 College Freshman

Transportation: The free buses that run around campus are great. You can also ride the city buses for free as an NC State student. You can also rent a bike as needed from the recreation center.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Dorm life is dorm life. Not too expensive, but there's always the chance of awful suitemates. It's certainly convenient to live on campus, but there are tons of off-campus housing options nearby.

5 College Freshman

Scholarships: Financial aid has been great, the office is easy to reach and communicate with. Be sure to get in FAFSA by the deadline, though.

4 College Freshman

Academics: I am currently a part of the First Year College program because I was accepted as an Undecided major. Fortunately, this program has given me the opportunity to explore and network with others who have already declared their majors. Assignments focus on allowing students to explore their options and to narrow their interests by talking to representatives and other students who are studying in the fields that they are most interested in.

2 College Freshman

Parking: Permit costs are overly expensive and parking is sort of limited on the part of campus where most of the classes are held. Freshman parking is also really far away from main campus.

4 College Freshman

Academics: NC State is very vigorous when it comes to academics. I chose this school because of its phenomenal academic and graduation reputation. They offer numerous resources to aid students with their education including the University Tutorial Center and the University Counseling Center in order to help students who struggle with learning disabilities and test anxieties.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: The Athletics are very competitive and our school provides an ample amount of resources for our athletes.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

Overall, the students' experience with NCSU is that it provides them with a rich learning environment. Students learn to balance play and work. Some come to NC State because of family tradition, to get away from the cold, or because of the College of Engineering-but whatever the reason is for the individual, positive feedback always finds its way out. Professors at the University will go above and beyond their call of duty. You make lifelong friends, and you have a huge list of organizations to partake in. Whether you're involved in a college sport, student government, or the Agribusiness Club, you will find your niche here among the thousands of students. Some professors will take you under their wing, and you will learn enormous amounts of information from them. These professors will also become lifelong connections who will probably end up writing letters of recommendation for you when it is time for you to find a job.

NC State wants its students to succeed not only in academics, but in life, too. Here you learn important lifelong skills that are essential to your survival in the real world. Classes can be rigorous and stressful, but students find a way to overcome hardships and get through. Professors will push you to do your best, but at the same time, they understand what it was like to be a student. NC State will help you become an expert in your subject of choice, and with the large number of students, you will come out of college ready to work in some of the most diverse settings.
